Vampires will soon be on the loose in Richmond and Chesterfield. A local filmmaker has set his sights on local places for his movie "Vampires in Virginia."

Midlothian-based writer/producer Kahil Dotay came up with the idea for "Vampires in Virginia" knowing there would be only one city he would film it in: the Richmond-area.

"Going into the movie you should expect to be scared, thrilled and you will also see some places you recognize around town and some familiar faces as well," said Dotay.

Places like the Mid-Lothian Mines Park will serve as a backdrop for the film. The ruins at the park will set the stage for a vampire feast.

In Shockoe Bottom, Dotay says vampires will chase down the movie's heroines.

"We're looking all around the area for specific locations that I know only Virginia can provide," Dotay said. "Specifically, only Richmond and Chesterfield can provide."

Dotay says he plans to begin filming as soon as this winter. The film is still seeking camera people, actors and other help. If you're interested in getting involved, visit or
